City of Carbondale Elects Not to Renew Liquor License for Controversial Restaurant

Controversial Carbondale Restaurant and Night Club “The Pony” is without a liquor license after the Carbondale City Council voted not to renew the businesses license. Board members voted 4-3 in favor of declining the restaurants renewal request. The City has long had a strained relationship with the establishment, as the owner also runs two strip clubs of the same name. The Pony has 19 days to appeal the decision, and can serve alcohol during that time.
